The idea behind primary care is to provide a go-to medical home for every patient. A primary care office is the place you can go no matter your health care concerns. Your primary care physician acts as your one-stop solution for preventive health, acute care, and chronic disease management.
Our physicians have a wide breadth of knowledge in many health care areas in order to be able to properly diagnose and treat ailments of any kind. Primary care involves the widest scope of health care, covering all ages and demographics while providing care for patients seeking to maintain their optimal health as well as those managing more serious chronic health problems. At ZenLife MD, our doctor has the experience and knowledge base to treat both adults and children in a comfortable and professional setting.
Primary care is the first step in the health care process, and your provider acts as the first contact and principal point of continuing care for patients within a healthcare system. Your physician will recommend trusted specialists for your specific needs and ensure that your health is taken care of.
With a primary care provider, the key is continuity. When you consult the same provider for all your checkups and medical needs, not only do you get to know your doctor, your doctor gets to know you, too. Your primary care team works to get to know you, your medical history, and your needs so that they can provide the best possible care and find the solutions that work for you.
At a hospital or larger clinic network, you don’t get the same personalized service. When you use a smaller practice, your doctor can get to know you personally and offer friendly reassurance that will help you feel comfortable when discussing your medical needs.
Primary care services cover a variety of different types of visits. Preventative care is the top priority when it comes to your health. The goal of your primary care provider is to help you stay healthy with regular checkups. A primary care physician can take care of your annual checkup, as well as sick visits. When there’s something ailing you, your doctor can provide relief, diagnose your problem, and recommend further steps to continue your treatment and get you on the path to recovery. Your physician can also your school physicals, as well as assist with nutrition and weight loss. Trust your primary care physician to take care of your health and address your needs.
